Announcing Art + Science Grantees

Khoj is very excited to announce the grantees for the third iteration of its Art + Science programme. The grantees are Sonia Mehra Chawla (India), Kaushal Sapre, Tulika Aasma and Abhinav Gupta (India), Bodhisattva Chattopadhyay, Goutam Ghosh and Susanne M. Winterling (Norway), Darya Warner and Puneet Kishor.

Khoj’s interest in Art and Science is in promoting a dialogue between artists and scientific concepts, phenomena and technology through practice. It fosters the creation of new expert knowledge in the arts by extending artists’ practice in connection with fundamental research.

Instituted by Khoj and supported by Wellcome Trust/DBT India Alliance, the Art + Science programme is designed to advance projects that explore artistic applications of emerging thoughts and technologies with the help of partners from the scientific industry and academia. This year the Art + Science Grant will fund a small number of projects that engage emerging themes around science and technology. The grant consists of a six month research and development period culminating into a four-week residency and Open Studio at Khoj Studios in Spring 2018.
